Manchester United have completed the signing of France under-17 international Aliou Traore.
The former Paris Saint-Germain youth product had impressed on a pre-season training camp in Austria this summer and has already made debut for the Red Devils, in a 3-2 defeat to Wolves in the under-18 Premier League Cup.
Traore is predicted to have a big future, even though he doesn’t turn 17 until January.
“Traore is a boy we’ve been looking at for a while,” Under-18s coach Kieran McKenna said.

“He is a really powerful midfielder who likes to run box to box. He is very strong technically and is improving all the time.
“He’s a nice man and his English is improving. He’s settling in well with the boys and has taken to the club really well.”
GREAT BETWAY OFFER!
The new boy should be available for United’s FA Youth Cup campaign, which starts on December 17. He will be hoping to emulate the likes of fellow countrymen Eric Cantona and Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
